Yangarra Estate Old Vine Grenache 2016

The vines were just over 70 years old at harvest. The grapes were well treated in the winery. The price is $35. Australian wine is a lovely place sometimes.

The beauty of redcurrant and liquorice. The woody spice notes, splashed generously about. The tannin, firm and fine but commanding. Whole bunch influences are sensed as the fruit gushes through. I don’t really need to go on. This is a tip top terrific grenache, without a shadow of a doubt.

Alcohol : 14.5%
Price : $35
Closure : Screwcap
Drink : 2019 - 2029
